Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

There are valid arguments about fire effects being expensive to run etc but with regards to safety, just because the ride is wooden doesn't mean that there has to be any sort of risk from using fire, it just has to be a safe distance away from the structure, that's all. I don't know if this ride wil...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Hi everyone. I really want to do Alton Towers scarefest this year but I'll be travelling without a car this time. So I know it will make sense to stay in a hotel over night, which is what I'm going to do, but I need directions on how to get To Alton Towers. I managed to reach Thorpe Park on my own ...

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

The themig structure is considerably taller than the surrounding ride structure, if they are going to launch fire it could be done from towards the top of the theming structure. This would leave some room for safety.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

As long as the main theming element looks good and the station/pre show buildings are well themed I'll be happy.

I do hope that they keep everything consistent with the overall feel of the ride such as the queue line shop and extension queue areas.

Re: SeaWorld Abu Dhabi

I would very much like to see some coasters in the final park, but I don't think it necessarily needs them, especially given the number of rollercoaster parks opening in the UAE recently. Facilities like Georgia Aquarium attract around 3 million visitors a year without having a single ride.

I've got a pretty significant update on SeaWorld Abu Dhabi here :) A friend of mine managed to find a concept image of SeaWorld Abu Dhabi. It is not of the best quality, and is also upside down, but I will run through what it may reveal to us below. Just remember, I have no information on the accura...

Didn't the station plans reveal that there will be 24 riders per train?

The throughput without this would be appaling.

The ride should be called Wicker head & shoulders rather than Wicker Man.

In all seriousness, this looks like it will be very impressive!

Re: SeaWorld Abu Dhabi

Just a thought, As this park is fully indoors, I'm assuming it will take Ferrari World's record of 'World's Largest Indoor Park'? I'm fairly sure Ferrari World doesn't hold that record anyway. That would be IMG Worlds Of Adventure if I'm not mistaken? That said, if the figures on the Wikipedia page...

I have a weird question but does anyone have any tricks to get the VR in focus fast enough for the ride's launch? I'm pretty sure I experienced it with pretty blurry VR and was curious if anyone's found a trick to make it work better. Blurry 240p quality VR with little to no audio is pretty standar...

Re: SeaWorld Abu Dhabi

It has now been confirmed that SeaWorld Abu Dhabi will be a fully indoor park. I presume that there will be coasters loading inside with much of the layout outside as we have seen at Ferrari Land.
